New Bible Study: Gospel of Luke
There will be a Bible study beginning Tuesday, September 18. The topic of study is the Gospel of Luke. There will be no books to buy and no DVDs to watch.
The only things needed are (1) your Bible, (2) a desire to spend time reading and studying Luke, (3) a willingness to share with others what the words are saying to you, and (4) a willingness to listen to what others understand the words are saying to them. We will be listening together to hear what God is saying to us.
Date: Monday, September 17
Time: 5:30 pm (to be negotiated at the first meeting)
Place: Joy classroom
We hope this time will give even those who work an opportunity to join. If you are interested, call the office to leave your name and phone/email information. For details and questions, call Barbara Hood (coordinator) at 325-938-5684 or 512-818-2069.
Jail Ministry -- Is God Calling You?
Our church joined the Goldthwaite jail ministry program last year by having both a male and a female group going on Tuesday evenings during January and February. We would like to do that again in 2019.
Each session is for one hour with the women's meeting beginning at 7:00 and the men's at 8:00. (The women were usually late in closing but we will make a new year's resolution to close on time in 2019.) The groups consist of a leader and several others who meet with the incarcerated individuals who wish to come. The leader selects a passage from the Bible which the group reads and discusses.
We meet to share the word of God and to share our understanding of that word. We are not there to become personal friends or to participate in their legal activities. It is an attempt to help those in trouble find the relationship with God that they need to deal with their trouble and find a way forward. Please consider making this mission a part of your weekly commitment to God.
If you have questions or are willing to join us, please call me at 325-938-5684 or call the church office.
